    This sounds to me as if we would be going backwards. What is exactly wrong with banning woman from serving on subs? I cannot think of any reasons why that is wrong.

    This would solve at least one of their miseries during long voyages at sea. I wonder how many more it would create however.
    This looks like an advertisement for job creation in the legal sector. There will be lawsuits out of this if it goes through and theres more jobs for lawyers I would guess.
    Being an Air Force man I did not realize that the Navy actually had "2 year excursions" for submariners. For some reason I thought that the longest excursion was 6 months.

    Two-year excursions? Seriously? Wow.

    There would, without a doubt, be issues with pregnancies.

    Just trying to see if the only objection to this is the close quartering issues that were presented.

    pregnancies hell that would not be the only problem. If the Navy actually has 2 year + excursions and we allow woman to serve on subs the subs would have to be 3-4 football fileds longs a 1 to 2 football fields wide. We would have to make room for preschool, day care, play grounds with play scapes, along with the manditory prenatal, post natal, in the naval centers, birthing centesr, leche league ladies, and the sub- tenders would have to carry Pampers and Binkeys......


    PS Now some MARINES, ARMY, and Air Force people may alrady beleive that the NAVY passes out Binkeys to their personel as standard equiotment LOL !! JUST INTERSERVICE joking !! I think that the squids are doing a great job...
